Generate a dictation

Permanent link to this post Posted by fredcooper » Sun Feb 07, 2016 4:58 pm

Hello!

I'm learning English. In view to practicing I would like to generate dictation from audiobooks: I would like to add extra silence time each time the reader pauses.

I used 'silence finder' to spot every pause and I worked pretty well. I just need a way to add silence after each label.

Does someone know a way to do so?

Fred

There is a plug-in available here which I think will do what you need: viewtopic.php?p=247774#p247774

Hey Fred, I did a short 6 min video for what you are wanting to do. Just so you know, @Steve has far more knowledge then I do, concerning Audacity. The way I did it was using the "Split" command under the Edit Menu / Clip Boundaries / Split. You can view it here. https://youtu.be/r1yQQDOnC90.

@Steve, I downloaded your recommendation and will play with it later this afternoon. Thanks for the info.
